General Information

Overview

Psychoactive drug use in our society challenges all of us. This unit analyses individual and societal attitudes to psychoactive drug use by exploring the history of its use, drug policy, public health responses and current media issues. It examines why people use psychoactive drugs and the harms associated with drug use in some people in some circumstances and what can be done to minimise that harm.

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Students through feedback.

Feedback

The forum post topics were sometimes hard to incorporate into assessments 1 and 2. Perhaps there could be multiple questions asked every week instead of one and students can decide what questions they want to respond to.

Recommendation

Add more than one question to the weekly discussion forum to provide more options to students.

Feedback from Students through feedback.

Feedback

Some of the links in the study guide did not work or referred students to the older version of the textbook which was confusing.

Recommendation

Check all links for the study guide at the beginning of Term 1, 2022 and at least once throughout the term. Ensure all old textbook references are updated to the new version.
